POLICE have launched an investigation after disorder broke out at the FA Vase fixture between Stourport Swifts and Worcester City FC.

A policing operation took place yesterday (Saturday 10 February) inside and outside Stourport Swifts FC’s stadium during the derby match.

West Mercia Police said a disorder broke out amongst a group of fans inside the stadium during the match, which led to the match having to be paused.

Officers have now launched an investigation into the incident to understand what happened.

Inspector Lisa Hornberger, said: “We deal robustly with anyone that looks to commit offences at football matches, and an investigation into the incident is now taking place.

“We worked closely with Stourport Swifts FC to ensure that the vast majority of home, and away fans, had a safe and enjoyable experience, but unfortunately a minority spoilt that for the majority of fans who attended.”
